Um, well that's a funny title I've given my blog-post today - I'm going to have to work hard to pull it all together and reign myself in to writing a cohesive post . . . oooops! Well, anyway, School Sports day this week meant I had to write off a whole day of creativity, but it was a lovely, sunny day and we all went home happy . . . and a little sunburnt, I will never learn, hehe - I think you're supposed to make sure the children don't get burnt, not the parents!!!
So not a lot of making 'n creating this week - at the weekend though I did a little work on my 'tweedie' motifs, which I've decided to turn into little craft-kits - hey, why should I do all the work!;-) You've got to make your own tweedie-garlands and decs now - the gauntlet is down, so to speak! I made up three packs for online sale, complete with packaging and added a little blurb on the back giving some tips on how to use 'em.
Here are the three variations on the kit (complete with a length of hessian string, not shown in the first image) . . .
. . . a fresh haul of 'tweedie' fish :D
(this last 'rogue' fish is facing in the wrong direction - he must be a bit of a rebel, hehe :) (or just a little lost!)
. . . stars in your eyes!
. . . have a heart (or two!)
. . . sorry, not a very clear pic of the packaging - but they DO look quite nice, honest!!!
I'm giving away ONE of my craft-kits in your choice of motif - fishy, stars or hearts (4 in each pack) - just leave a comment saying which one you'd like. Alternatively you could choose to have a pack with ONE of each motif - three motfis in total, nice for making individual 'decs' - you choose! I'll be making the craft-kit especially for the giveaway, so the colours shown won't be exactly the same. I had so much fun playing with the shapes I couldn't resist making them into a little kit - as you can see, they're quite rustic with unfinished edges, but are made with double thickness of tweed making them quite substantial.
You can enter the Giveaway wherever you are in the world - just leave a comment with a link to your blog, or/and a link to contact you if you've won. I'll leave the Giveaway open until Saturday 2nd June, midday (12 pm) British time. If you don't win, I have added some of the kits to my Etsy shop, one of which has sold - but I'd like to have a regular little supply of them, as I think they're quite fun!
My youngest came home from school with a lovely collage city-scape this week and as I haven't any new makes this week, I'll feature his work instead! I really liked how he meticulously drew all the windows on the sky-scapers - such dedication to detail!
Ah, to see the world through a child's eyes - they have such clear, uncluttered vision!! Then we grow up and get all muddled and befuddled - it's such a shame, hehe!!
I hope you will enter my Giveaway - it would be fun to send a little tweedie-package off to someone I know would make very good use of it! More creative-types over this way - Byeee! :D
